BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso concept car unveiled

BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso concept car unveiled

BMW and Pininfaria have unveiled the BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe concept at Villa d'Este. Both the companies claim it to be an interpretation of a luxurious BMW Coupe as seen through the eyes of Pininfarina, hinting at possibility of future 8 Series. 

The concept looks radical and in a way revolting, but does not lose the traditional BMW looks. The long bonnet, double-kidney grille, road focused headlights, bold shoulder line and unique 21-inch alloy-wheels highlight the concept. The rear end is very futuristic with the lights connecting the rear-quarter panels.

The interior of the Gran Lusso gets an elegant, sportiness, exclusive and dynamic design. The front and rear seats from the Pininfarina drawing board welcomes its occupants with sporty side supports while providing the decent levels of comfort.  The vehicle gets the leather upholstery from the Foglizzo leather factory which is black and light shade of Tobacco Brown. 

The driving-related functions and controls are slightly angled towards the driver to be within optimal ergonomic reach.  The dashboard has been made using 48,000 years old kauri wood to give the most exclusive status. Underneath the hood, the car gets V12 engine which gives the car not only a luxurious design tag but also adds the performance oriented image.

The Gran Lusso concept will certain not go into production, but this might form the base for future 8 Series GT model. While there is still no announcement from BMW,  the new model fits in the current BMW trend of building trendy cars based on the existing range – the 3 Series will spawn 4 Series coupe and the 6 Series is already an extension of the 5 Series.
